List Rules Vote up the best sports movies of 2018.

If you're a big fan of sports, you should have no problem recalling all the best sports movies from 2018. While sports films aren't nearly as popular as their sci-fi, thriller, or action brethren, they provide some great entertainment to dedicated fans. Of course, some within the drama genre can speak to a range of viewers, but it usually helps if you're a fanatic yourself—though there are a few must-watch romance sports films. Nevertheless, some great sports flicks came out in 2018 and it's up to you to determine which was best.

While most sports films are typically dramas, this year brought something a little different to the table with the hit comedy Uncle Drew. Not only does it showcase some great basketball, but it also features some top NBA players. For your more serious 2018 sports films, you have First Match, Lean on Pete, and the high school sports flick The Miracle Season—all of which are great dramas. Featuring some quintessential sports movies, as well as a hilarious comedy, 2018 brought some great films in the sports category, but which do you think were best?

Check out the list of 2018 sports movies below and vote up your favorites. If you are looking for more lists about sports movies, take a look at this list of 2019 sports movies.
